PowerPress is a free podcast publishing tool from Blubrry that powers more podcasts worldwide than any other plugin. On March 10, 2017, PowerPress surpassed one million downloads.
PowerPress was launched in 2008 and quickly became the most popular plugin on the market. Approximately 18 percent of all podcasts found on iTunes use PowerPress, more than any other service or platform. The plugin now powers more than 65,000 podcast websites ranging from single podcasts to radio stations and podcast networks, the biggest having more than 600 shows on a single install.
There are many reasons why PowerPress has been downloaded 6 times as much as any other podcasting plugin. Perhaps the most important is the ease of use and all-in-one experience it allows.
For thousands of podcasters, PowerPress has served as a free, easy-to-use introduction to the top notch services Blubrry provides. But, the real magic happens when PowerPress is used in tandem with other Blubrry products, such as hosting and professional podcast stats. The products work seamlessly together, allowing podcasters to create, publish, and distribute their podcasts – plus share new episodes on social media and check analytics – all without leaving their WordPress dashboard.
